Senior Class History 

Our class has readied its goal after liaviiig been repealeilly added t(i and 
subtraeted from. Of its nine |ireseiit nieiubers (inly 1\v(i were Freshmen 
together four years ago. Eaeli of us, iiowever, lias been through the mill, 
and we are all ou a sutfieient level of sympathy to reeount with united hearts 
tlie ups anil downs of our college career. 

From the Ijeginning we have striven each year to live up to the principles 

eml)odied in our name. No Freshmen could have I ii fresher than we. When 

the mighty Sojjhs put us to l)ed, soon after our ai-rival at Chowan, we little 
ones abl.v retaliated by giving them the paddling which they .justly deserved. 
Throughout this year of our infancy we were a constant source of embarrass- 
ment, if not terror, to the Sophomores and Seniors. Such indignities as 
leaving them no alternative but to wear their every day shoes to. church, or, 
securing them behind locked dooi-s while we ate a double share of breakfast, 
were eonnnonly inflicted ujion these worthies. And, as for their liohling a 
class meeting undisturbed — it was simply out of tiie ipiestion! 

We came back the second year with a wise determination to show our 
successors their jilace as newcomers in college. Puffed up with imjiortanee, 
we assured them that certain procedures were dangerous to the health of 
youngsters so unskilled in the wa.vs of college life. ^lany were the trials of 
the Freshmen that year. If they planned a picnic, it was known to us before 
the guest-of-honor even dreamed of it. Once when they were making cakes 
for the purpose of entertaining the Juniors, somehow or other, an overmeasure 
of salt got into the batter. To their credit, however, we must sa.y that the.v 
bravely ate it all and quenched their wrath with an extra supply of water. 
On another occasion, we Sophomores en.ioyed a stolen delight, some cheese 
straws ])repared by tlie Juniors for the palates of the Freshmen. As faithful 
allies of our sister class we frequentl.y guarded the crow's nest while the 
Seniors held their councils there, thereby preventing our escapach-s of the pre- 
ceding year from being repeated by the new Freshmen. 

During our Junior year we, as jirospective Sen'ors, conducted oui'selves 
with budding dignity. The credit foi- our remarkable cahnness, I fear, how- 
ever, must be shared by IMiss Esther Wynn, who was in charge of the College 
last year. Her all-seeing eye had a peculiarly soothing effect upon our mis- 
chievous natures. The one big event of the year was the Juiiior-Senior reception 
to which every college stiulent looks forward longingly. Vain Illusion, liow^ 
like a shadow: sought, chased and grasped, it vanished into nothing 1 After 
weeks of thought and worry, then da.vs of labor and more worry, the final 
catastrophe came in the comjilete failure of our attempt to "show-off" when 
we entertained the Senior Class. 

All seven members of the Junior Class returned this year for the final 
bout. Besides these, we had two additions to our band. We are proud of 

our last year. Chowan will mean more to us in the future for our having 


seen ill the glory of her new raiment. The wonderful improvements effected 
in building and equipment, under the supervision of our beloved new President 
will greatly supplement our memory of our Alma Mater. In accordance with 
the new atmosphere of the place, we have borne ourselves with all the dignity 
at our command. As a side-line, our class has ('(intributed toward the finances 
of the Annual by presenting at the College and three neighboring towns two 
amateur plays. For a graduating present to ourselves, we are planning a trip 
to Washington, D. C, to be made after commencement, under the chaperonage 
of President and 'Sim. Vann. 

As the Senior Class of l!t21, we go forth from this institution with a fond 
farewell to the Past, and a hearty greeting to the future. We feel that any 
failure on our part to cope with the world will be due to a lacking in our 
original outtit, and not to any fault in our training. The brightest of hopes 
accompany us all as we cross the threshold to full and responsible womanhood.

ass r oem 


We have conie to the end of our journey here, 

And we look Imek over tlie way ; 
All the tests and exams we stood in fear 

While exempts made our spirits gay. 
Do you think what the end of tiiese perfeet years 

Can mean to vis Seniors, nine? 
We tlien thought it only a vale of tears, 

But bright it "s joys now shine. 

We've reached on this, our Comineneement Day, 

Tlie top of the ladder stee]). 
And we take the vow this day in May 

We'll all our ideals keep. 
Our dear Alma ^Mater's memory true 

Will never in fond hearts faxle. 
And through our lives with pride we'll view 

Tlic |)atli to the goal we've made.

Here is the President of our class. In 
more than one respect she is a remarkable 
character, particularly in that she has the 
ability to learn without studying. Sue has 
the reputation of being perfectly original and 
is always brinuning full with new ideas which 
extend all the way from the solution of Phy- 
sics problems to the control of Cupid's Ar- 
rows, the truth of the latter being in daily 
evidence. In truth, she is never seen with- 
out her "twin", namely, "Red" Turnley, 
who has for Sue as Sue for her a jieculiar 
magnetism. Po.ssessed of an invincible de- 
termination she is always sure to accomplish 
what she has once begun. After taking into 
consideration every quality, we pronounce 
Svie one of the most capable, admirable, and 
brilliant members of the Class of '21.

one wonld .judge that Enrico Caruso or Amc- 
lita Galli-Curci had arrived on the scene. At 
will Doris can make the most extraordinary 
gyrations, now impersonating ilary Pickford. 
now Irene Castle. Her super-alnnidance of 
energy finds expression in other fields, how- 
ever, for she is an accomjilished pianist and 
has spent much time and anxiety in prepar 
ing for her recital. Contrary to the usual 
disposition of the oidy chihl, Doris is aiiiialilc 
and ambitious.

^lay the ty])c of this girl never l)e lacking 
in the student body of Chowan College. Her 
practical, resourceful brain show her to be 
a born leader. Theo is a maid of forceful 
personality whose fixed opinions command 
the respect of her class-mates. Her favorite 
study is English and she gives promise of 
being another 'Henry in short story writ- 
ing. She knows no such word as failure. In 
any task, whatever, success is always hers. 
With her queenly bearing, sweet disposition, 
and lofty manner she holds a large place in 
the hearts of the faculty and fellow-students.

Behold the •■dare-(U'vil'" of the elas.s of 
'21 ! Nettie is a strong advocate of class 
spirit. Where there is fun and mischief 
abroad she is ahva.ys present. Her eagle eyes 
never fail to detect the secret schemes of 
the under classmen and she is equally alert 
in the matter of originating and executing 
stunts of her own class. She doesn't hesitate 
to ascend the tower ((i5 feet high) in order 
to establish our class banner, any more than 
she would refrain from paddling an unruly 
Freshman. Aside from these facts, Nettie is 
equall.y energetic and capable both on the 
athletic field and in the class room. In her 
nuisical career she has done credit both to 
herself and to her Alma .Mater.

Ethel's all-round capaiiility is provetl liy the 
various trusts connnitted to her during her 
college course. As President of our Student 
Government Association she has held the re- 
S])ect and esteem of the entii'e student liody. 
In fact, we regard her as the l)ack-bone of our 
class. Unlike most studious girls, she is the 
only member of our who has had the op- 
])ortunity of "entertaining" in Chowan's 
renovated parlor this year. This fact goes to 
prove her wonderful ability to win the admira- 
tion and perhaps 1 of more than tiie in- 
mates of Chowan.

Kuth is one of the most brilliant members 
of our class, especially in psychology. She 
always has a psychological answer ready for 
any query. Aside from this hobby, her next 
greatest interest lies in the field of "Modern 
Art and Poetry." We think she makes an 
excellent critic, since she still holds that po- 
.sition with one "Modern Artist" after two 
years of service. In addition to these inter- 
ests, we find her among those who reach the 
highest round in the ladder of success in all 
other fields of knowledge. Along with her 
intellectual ability she has the power of win- 
ning and holding tlie esteem, love and friend- 
ship of both student body and faculty.

Eva is an artistic nature, her soul tintling 
expression in botii song and poetry. She 
waxes poetical at the slightest provocation, 
and thereby never fails to amuse herself as 
well as her class-mates. But when she ap- 
pears on the stage, her poems pale into insig- 
nifieanee. ller voice, like herself, is gentle, 
sweet and delightful. Eva manifests a deep 
interest in political affairs, thus showing that 
at heart she is a suffragist — we expect great 
things of her.

This modest girl has meant much to her 
Alma ]Mater as well as to her class-mates. 
She possesses every quality which constitutes 
the make-up of a refined, dignified, and vir- 
tuous character. Mary lias made herself felt 
ill every thing she has undertaken, he it in 
the Literary Society, Y. W. A. or her daily 
tasks. Especially is she talented in piano. 
We call her "The IMusiciau" of the student 
body and every one considers it a treat to 
hear her play. The music seems to come di- 
rectly from her soul to her finger tips. How 
well those fingers heed the commands of lier

For traveling in the by-ways and hedges 
of thought .Mary can't he lieaten. She can 
always furnisii some self-evident, l)ut pre- 
viously unnoticed idea to her classes. The 
manner in which she expresses hei-self never 
fails to bring a smile. To every duty, how- 
ever trivial, during her college career, Mary 
has been faithful. One never sees her stroll- 
ing on the campus or shouldering her tennis 
racket for a game until first her lessons are 
prepared and the regular epistle to "Jim" 
is ready for mailing. Along with her stu- 
dious nature, .she is blessed with a sunny dis- 
position and her .jolly laugh has oftimes l)een 
instrumental in dispelling the gloomy hours 
of her classmates. Witii tliis admirable spirit 
of endeavor and truth to iu'rself we are glad 
to send her forth as a worthy representative 
of her Alma ^Vlater. 




Junior History 

For three long years, we've stood the test, 

This Junior class of three, 
And it's up to you, to guess the rest 

Of this Junior class of three. 
Together we've worked to reach (lur aini. 

This Junior class of three, 
Till with pride and fame we've won a name. 

This Junior class of three. 

We once were known as tlie Freslimen green 

In the year 191S. 
And a perter liuncji was never seen 

Than tlie Freshman of 'IS; 
For we even dared to entertain 

The big-headed Sophomores keen. 
To serve our class they did not deign I 

And hear how they showed their spleen: 

The moon was .shining bright one night, 

A liay ride did we give. 
Wlien we returned it was to tight ; 

The Sophomores could not live! 
For when we started our cake to eat 

We found it full of salt, 
And our anger then reached fever heat ; 

We knew 'twas the Sophomores fault ! 

In our Soph year, in number small. 

Three of "us held the fort ; 
Our aspirations did not fall 

And our Seniors gave support. 
That mother class we'll not forget, 

That was so good to ns. 
Each Senior chose a Sophomore pet. 

Our bond was cemented thus. 

Now, at last our Sopii year jiast, 

A motlier class are we. 
We've stored up knowledge l)roa(l and vast. 

Afar shines our degree. 
A hou.sehold artist of .skill is Hun. 

And Pearl the artist to be, 
While Jo as athlete high place has won — 

An all-round class, you see. 

And though insignificant Juniors we're callci 

Wi^ll yet win our A. It. 
Its charm for us has never palled 

And the end we now foresee. 
We'll to all those who .ioin us late 

A welconu^ guarantee. 
And let them link in with the fate 

(If this great old c-Iass of three.

Freshman Spirits 

Our freshman year lias now ui'own iiKl 
lint grievously o'er us it rolletl, 
For we were rats with plenty of pep 
And for our boldness gained a rep. 
The Sophomore class might do its worst 
And say "Let Seniors enter tirst," 
Or "Wear no powder on your face," 
But why let Sophomores set our pace, 
F'or if we did how sad our lot! 
The rules of So])hs are tommyrot ! 

Thanksgiving Day it was decreed 

"Fresh"' should be pinned where all could read. 

Instead a Sophomore had the honor 

And a lively Freshman was the donor. 

The Sophomores began the .iob 

Of dressing us in "suitable" garb; 

Silk hose they said, were quite foi-biddcn. 

Hut we'd not bo liy Soiihs o'erridden! 

We'll take tlie rein the coming year 

And give the Freshman cause for fear; 

We'll train them up, take an early start, 

Not wait till they're old and think they are smart. 

Then too we'll give them sensible rules. 

Not act as if handling a lot of nuiles. 

In other words, we'll be merciful and .just, 

Not try to humble them into the dust. 

As Juniors we'll prevent the i)listers 
The So])homores will try to give our sisters. 
We'll give them our motto and say "Be Bold," 
We'll give them our colors, our Blue and our Oold. 
And when at last we're Seniors wise 
We'll still our Freshman ideals ]irize; 
And one thing certain, we'll feel no shame 
Because as Freshmen we were uame.

Genevieve Tavli)r, '2;1 

When with the dawn the soHriu^ lark starts sinking, 

Anil all the world of nature stirs from sleep, 
And when the sun arises, her message bringing. 

And sweet contentment o'er our hearts doth sweep, 
AikI when the banished and shadowy elves of luijlit 

Seek distant refnge from its shining rays, 
Then the glorious morning bursts upon our sight 

Declaring to us the lieauty of Spring's sweet days. 
Then little buds from dewy beds arise. 

And lift their pretty nodding heatls aloft, 
As fades the morning star in the ethereal skies, 

And the winds o'er land and sea sweet perfumes doth waft. 
Then comes to us the truth of (iod's great love. 
Which mortal hearts to gratitude doth move. 



P^iiiiiia Ividdick Parker, '28 

A glorious luie oVr spreads the changing sky, 

Ami jasper, sapphire, aiiietiiyst, ami jaile. 
Fling out their banners brilliantly on higli ; 

And when the matchless colors slowly fade, 
'Tis then the sun sets o'er the shadowed hill, 

"Tis then Aurora closes the gates of day. 
Twilight comes and all the land is still 

And through the trees we see the sun's last ray; 
The gloom that stands as porter at the gate 

Forbids one single tleeoy cloud remain, 
The evening star climbs to his jilace to wait. 

And silence o'er all the land doth reign. 
And while we sit and watch it softly fade 

Come visions of other days with beauty laid. 


The Lady Principal as Principal Lady 

Tlieodolimla Kuzi'lia Earlv, "21 

"Now girls,"' liegan Miss Wnnteii in a inattpr-of-fact iiianiicr, '■lpt"s have a 
coHcisr and decisii^e talk al)out this Fair Inisiiipss."' 

At the tirst tap of the big college bell all the girls had assembled In the 
ehapel anticipating good news from tlie result of a petition signed l)y all of 
them, and passed in the preceding night. Tlie plea was for just one night to 
go to the County Fair. Of course they expected to be allowed to go at least 
one da.v. But what is a whole day of plain daylight — fair with its tables of 
needlework and canned goods, its array of ]iure-l)red horses and full-bloodeil 
Plynioutli Rocks, in coinjiarison to one romantic and ecstatic hour at night? 
Under the glamour of the twinkling lights the merry-go-round, the slur and 
jerk of the Whip, and the uii-aiid-ai-ound of th(> Fei'ris Wheel, while the band 
pla.ys, "Whisiici' and tell nie that you love me,"' produce a thrill niikiiowii to 
the young heart by day. 

"Yes,"' continued ]\Iiss Wooten. "the Fai ulty has carefully considei'ed the 
pros and cons of your petition, and 1 want to exjilain to you why we eannot 
grant it." 

There was ;dmost a jar of relaxation throuulioul the room as the u-irls faces 

"We consider it not advisable for Chowan College to be rejiresented at the 
usual night performance of a Fair Cai-nival. I think that when you meditate 
upon the matter, you will see wliv we forbid youi' going, and 1liat tli(^ reasons 
are real ones." Heartless and triumphant the words fell. 

Of all the crest-fallen expressions, surely the most forlorn was that of Nellie 
Wooten, tlie younger sister of the lady, principal. With tlie exception of their 
present contrasted expressions, the face and figure of one sister was an almost 
exact counterpart of that of the other. JMiss Wooten 's superiority of eight 
years did not make her black hair one wiiit glossy than that of eighteen-year- 
old Nellie, nor did it lessen the brillianc.v of her dark eyes. In fact, the .younger 
rather than the older ]\Iiss Wooten. Iiore the school-teacher's tag — tortoise-rimmed 

As they filed out of Chapel with funeral step, Xellie whispered petulantly 
to her elbow neighbor: 

•■John Brown it 1 Now I've got to call Joe and change all our plans. I 
know si.ster is at the Itottom of it all, for she has .said all tlie time that she did 
not want me to go."" 

She went directly to the telephone olTicc and called her beau-of-the-moment, 
Joe Banks. 


"Is that Joe?— Tliis is Nellie. T'lii sri mad, I don't know what to do. We 
can't go to the Fair ne.xt week, exeept one old afternoon like we did last year. 

Sister What? Do you mean it? Is anyone listening at you? — 

I've a good mind to risk it . Oh, won't it he .jolly ! Yes, I'd 

much rather go Thursday night, so we ean see the fireworks. All right, 

I'll be out there and while you deliver a package or whatever you do, I 11 be 

stowing myself away in the car to escape curious eyes.— Well, dei)end 

on me and" remember that ''mum" is the word. Goodbye. 

Tuesday afternoon while Joe and his father were chatting with a loiteruig 
cu.stomer in their store, the bell tinkled. Mr. Banks beuig nearer, 
answered its call. After a brief conversation he turned and spoke ui .lestnig 
tone to his son. 

"Got ahead of von once. Old Hoy. 1 think 1 save time tor tli.' ( oHe^c when 
I instead of yon, talk to your girl. Miss Nellie wants a pound ot chocolate 
almonds, a box of crackers and a bottle of_ pickles. You'd better hx them up and 
deliver them now. You know girls don"t like to wait." 

And fix them up he did. In addition to the required artieh's, however, Joe 
inclosed in the package one of his cards bearing this message in pencil : 

"I've learned that we will have to go Wednesday night instead of Thursday. 
]\Ieet me at the parking place as before planned." 

Finding no one in the college hall, he wrote tiie one name, Wooten, on the 
bundle and left it in a chair for the owner to find. 

Ilai.Dilv for the conspirators, sunny Wednesday ushered in a clear moon- 
less nigh 'A^ the honk! honk! of Joe's Ford broke the solitude of the College 
camous a silent figure glided swiftly from the shadow of an evergreen shrub 
near'i; Wain. ' In .fassing Joe, as he strode brazenly toward the front door 
with a parcel for delivery, the figure paused. 
"It's all right, hurry back," it whispered. 

As the sneaking much-becloaked girl approached the car, muffled voices 
accosted her from the back seat. 

"Is that you Nell? Of course you yoiingst(>rs had to be chaperoned, so 
William and I are going, too!" 

"Oh'" she exclaimed in a low but relieved tone, as she took her place on 
the front seat " It 's William and Fanny, isn 't it ? I was so frightened because, 
when you first spoke, I thought that some of the girls up here had found out 
and were kidding me." 

Within a few minutes, Joe was at the wheel, and they were speeding out 
of Murfreesboro. Scarcely a word was spoken until they were out of town 
and were gliding along the highway to Winton. Then Joe volunteered a remark 
as he glanced admiringly at the face peering at him from under the softly droop- 
ing hat of his companion. 

"Nell, you're stunning in that hat. It goes so well with your coat. Do you 
remember 'the first time you wore it, yes when we went to the association to 
hear the death knell of Old Chowan when the trustees were so bent on moving 

•■Well, 1 recl.oii." was the High School reply of the college Freshman. 
"I wish you had left off those goggles tliough. You look too much like a 
school marm with spectacles Nell." 

"I know it, but if I had ridden in this wind witiiout them my red eyes 
would have betrayed me tomorrow." 


They had gone only about seven of the t\v(>Ive miles to the Pair Grounds, 
when an enlightening discussion of elder sisters, by Joe, was curtailed by a sudden 
choking and sputtering of the car. After a few spasmodic jerks and shivers, 
young Henry refused to render further service to the run-a-ways. With dis- 
gusted movements the two boys got' out and made a thorough examination of the 
engine. They tightened a few screws and endeavored to crank up again. The 
crank, however, would not crank. Cars began to roll by, some leisurely, some 
rapidly : but all seemed bent upon their own errand — going to the Fair. The 
boys worked heroicly, seeking some clue to the strange non-procedure of the 
Ford, while the girls giggled up their sleeves when the laborers gave vent to 
their exasperated feelings. About nine o'clock. William made the marvelous 
discovery that the gas supply was entirely exhausted. 

"Well, well, what a fool I am!" ejaculated Joe, as the signiticance of the 
discovery dawned upon him. "I drove the car out with the intention of tilling 
the tank when something else called my attention. When I went back to the 
car, I drove off supposing that I had got the gasoline. 

"I guess we are in for it now," said Fannie, resignedly, "because I heard 
today that the 'phone line is down at two or three places between .Murfrees- 
boro and Winton. And as absorbed as every motorist seems in his own interests 
tonight, I supjiose day-break will find us sitting here." 

■"Oh, for goodness sake, let's hojie not I" exclaimed the other uirl, iiorri- 

So there they stayed liour after hour — so it seemed. Joe produced a box of 
candy which he had brought for Nell. They ate and talked and then talked and 
ate. There was no light visible from any house. Finally the chill night air 
so penetrated their clothing, in spite of heavy wraps, tiuit they ])i-omciiaded up 
and down the road, endeavoring to keep warm. 

Sometime after Joe found, by the aid of a matcli, that liis watch registered 
ten-forty-five, the lights from the first car returning from Winton came into 
view. Surely, now, it would have time to incpiire about the way-farers by his 
side of the read, but alas ! it passed without so much as lessening speed for a 
moment. Pretty soon, however, another came so near miming into the lightless 
Ford that it was forced to check its si)eed, and, consequently, it stojiped to 
proffer aid. 

"All we aslv," said Joe, "is that you eitlu'r give us enough gas, or tow us 
into .Murfreesboro. We've lieen out here so long that the novelty of tlie situa- 
tion has become stale." 

Hitched to the other car, the Ford was soon pulled into a garage. There 
the two couples separated, Joe and his companion walking rapidly toward the 
college. When they reached the gate the girl paused under the big arc light. 

"Joe, I've had a very pleasant and instructive evening. I guess I had better 
go the rest of the way alone." With that sudden remark, she discarded her 
glasses and hat and turned her face to the light. Before the astounded boy stood 
Miss Wooten, the lady jn-ineipal. 

"The things that Nell ordered from the store yesterday were for me. She 
has not seen your note. Goodnight." 

Not until she was well out of the light did Miss Wooten stop running. Then 
looking backward she beheld Joe, standing hat-in-hand, with lower jaw drooped, 
gazing at the spot where she had been. 

Marvelous to say, the episode never leaked out. Nor did Nell go to the 
Fair, for Joe having a dreadful cold, was coiiMiied to his I'oom for tlie re- 
mainder of tlie week.
